Rivian is on a mission to keep the world adventurous forever. This goes for the emissions-free Electric Adventure Vehicles we build, and the curious, courageous souls we seek to attract. 

As a company, we constantly challenge what’s possible, never simply accepting what has always been done. We reframe old problems, seek new solutions and operate comfortably in areas that are unknown. Our backgrounds are diverse, but our team shares a love of the outdoors and a desire to protect it for future generations. 

The Rivian Automation Controls Development team aims to be at the forefront of innovation and technology in automation controls. Our mission is to research new platforms, utilize advanced hardware, and push the limits of technology to build a world-class automation platform that minimizes development time, reduces commissioning time, and eliminates unplanned downtime. 

 We are looking to accelerate our development by leveraging virtual commissioning and advanced simulation practices. We are looking for talented, forward-thinking engineers that will contribute to shape the virtual engineering and commissioning company vision. You will focus on developing code as well as testing and simulation for digital manufacturing equipment and its sub-assembly. You will work and define interfaces, workflow, and pipelines to link the PLC, Robotic, Vision and Controls equipment with Simulation and Digital Twins, in order to reach a full suite of automated testing. Those features will also drive requirements for internally built equipment and for vendors designing manufacturing equipment for Rivian. Together we will create tools to automate steps of the development and deployment process such as historical regression testing and hardware-in-the-loop testing. 

Responsibilities:

 As a Virtual Commissioning Engineer, you will work with cross functional teams to design, validate and deploy systems to achieve complete production line simulation. You will closely work with the Controls, DevOps, and Digital Manufacturing team to drive Digital Twin standardization in Rivian factories. You will have an incredible opportunity for growth as we have set ambitious goals of creating a state-of-the-art system to enforce CI/CD methodologies in the development and integration phases of complex industrial and robotic control system to ensure successful deployment. You will contribute by helping develop automated unit testing in both a simulated environment and with hardware-in-the-loop, automating deployment and auditing procedures, greenlight releases deployment and maintain multi-system build and test pipelines. 

 These are exciting times for the Automation Controls Development team and we need your unique talents to help us accomplish our lofty goals and ensure that Rivian continues to Keep the World Adventurous Forever. 

 Qualifications:

  • BS/MS Computer Science or equivalent or BS/MS in engineering disciplines relevant to automation (Electrical, Mechatronics, etc.) and relevant work experience developing software 
  • Experience as a Simulation Engineer or similar software engineering role 
  • Experience with Process Simulate, Plant Simulate, Emulate3D or other Digital Twin simulation software 
  • Experience working with continuous integration & continuous deployment (CICD) pipeline tools such as GitLab CI or Jenkins 
  • Experience working with dockerized containers and clustering using systems such as Kubernetes 
  • Experience programming with Python, Java, C#, Go o similar 
  • Proficient with source control, specifically git 

NICE TO HAVE: 

  • Experience with Ignition by Inductive Automation or similar HMI platform. 
  • Experience with Industrial Control Systems such as PLCs or Industrial Robots 
  • Experience working on applications for the manufacturing industry

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
